IP ratings refer to the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Devialet Gemini's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Devialet Gemini, Marshall Minor III have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We consider a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are easier to move with.
The Marshall Minor III, at 8g have the same weight as the Devialet Gemini
For a device to be true wireless it must have no wires linking any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a key distinction as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the 2 earbuds .
Marshall Minor III also is true wireless since it has no cables connecting the pair of earbuds together.
Devialet Gemini have sweat resistance
Marshall Minor III's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers, what this means is that Devialet Gemini's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Marshall Minor III and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
ANC uses more advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
The Devialet Gemini stay well in place, this creates a sound covering that tones down background noise well as preventing the device voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Devialet Gemini driver unit is 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the loudness of the device.
Marshall Minor III driver unit is 12mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 2mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
The Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component produces low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Marshall Minor III's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Devialet Gemini make sound with a juicier bass than the Marshall Minor III
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device produces high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
Marshall Minor III's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Devialet Gemini's measurement is 94dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Devialet Gemini's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Marshall Minor III's battery life is less than that of Devialet Gemini by 1 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and Devialet Gemini's case is said to have a full charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
Marshall Minor III's charging case has a battery life of 25 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 7 hours
It requires 1.5 hours to fully charge the Devialet Gemini's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for long periods.
Marshall Minor III takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini
